New Parents Walk and Talk

A monthly walk and talk session aimed at new parents who want to enjoy the great outdoors with their little one and meet others experiencing their first months of parenthood.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event

Bring your little bundle of joy for a gentle walk with fellow new parents around Stowe. Escape the house for some much-needed fresh air and beautiful views, meet others in the local community and share the highs and lows of parenthood together. Our friendly Walk and Talk team will be on hand to guide you around the walk. This is a free six month trial working in partnership with Leap, an organisation promoting the benefits of physical activity across Bucks.
